Pasco Woman Charged With Strangling Mother

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) — A Pasco County woman is in jail on a battery charge after police say she tried to strangle her 71-year-old mother.

Jail records show 31-year-old Kendall Gross was being held in the Land O’Lakes Jail Monday on $10,000 bond. She was charged with battery by strangulation and abuse of the elderly. It was not immediately known if she has an attorney.

The Tampa Tribune reports Gross was in the bathroom of the apartment both women shared Friday afternoon when her mother told her several times she needed to use the bathroom. The arrest report says her mother opened the bathroom door and Gross grabbed her by the throat. A deputy later reported seeing red marks on the woman’s throat.

The report also says that Gross told the deputy she grabbed her mother but never choked her.
